Bolton Wanderers Football Club has added an extra layer of protection to help combat the spread of COVID-19 at the University of Bolton Stadium by introducing a MYDIS Portal at the ground.
The MYDIS Portal is a walk–through disinfection experience that is ideal for areas with a high footfall.
Several units were in operation for the recent Soccer Aid for Unicef event at Old Trafford which saw celebrities and footballers walk through the no-touch sanitation stations.
A Portal was installed at the University of Bolton Stadium ahead of last Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two opener against Forest Green Rovers.
Wanderers Head Coach Ian Evatt, his players and all visitors and match day staff entered the stadium via the Portal to help enhance the Club’s COVID-secure protocols.
Wanderers Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Gartside, said: “The MYDIS Portal was used to great effect at the recent Football Aid event which highlighted how ideal it is in a sports setting.
”The safety and wellbeing of all our staff and visitors to the University of Bolton Stadium is our main concern and the use of the MYDIS Portal enhances our already robust COVID-secure environment.
“We’d like to thank MYDIS for providing the Portal and we look forward to working alongside them.”
Terri-Ann Boyle, Operations Director at MYDIS, said: “We have more than twenty years of experience in the disinfection industry, so we are putting our expertise to good use to ensure the University of Bolton Stadium is ready to welcome back the players and staff whilst adhering to government guidelines and sanitisation best practice during this difficult and challenging time.
“The sport industry has been one of the worst affected sectors of the pandemic, but we hope with our range of disinfectant solutions and sanitisers that this will add another layer of protection.”
